When is the US GDP report and how could it affect EUR/USD?

US Q2 GDP Overview

Thursday's US economic docket highlights the release of revised US Q2 GDP growth figures, scheduled to be published at 12:30 GMT. The second estimate is anticipated to show that the economic growth in the April-June quarter stood at 2.0% annualized pace as against the advance estimate of 2.1%, marking a sharp deceleration from the first quarter's final print of 3.1%.
as Joseph Trevisani - FXStreet's own Analyst explains - “The relatively small percentage of US GDP that stems from manufacturing, 12%-15% and the even smaller percentage due to exports 3%-5% are not sufficient to derail overall growth based on an expansive consumer. Their relative decline, however, has probably restricted economic activity to a 2.0%-2.5% range.”

Deviation impact on EUR/USD

Readers can find FX Street's proprietary deviation impact map of the event below. As observed the reaction on the pair, in case of a deviation between +0.68 to -0.82, is likely to be in the range of 20-34 pips in the first 15-minutes and could extend to 45-pips in the following 4-hours.


How could it affect EUR/USD?

Ahead of the important release, Yohay Elam, Analyst at FXStreet provides important technical levels to trade the EUR/USD pair – “Support awaits at 1.1050, which provided support late last week. The next level to watch is 1.1027 – the 2019 low. 1.1000 and 1.0960 are next.”
“Resistance awaits at 1.1115, which has capped the pair several times in recent weeks. It is closely followed by 1.1130 – twice a support line – and by 1.1165,” he added further.

About the US GDP

GDP Annualized is a gross measure of market activity because it indicates the pace at which a country's economy is growing or decreasing. Generally speaking, a high reading or a better than expected number is seen as positive for the USD, while a low reading is negative.
